Mark is a philosopher, environmentalist and author who has been teaching and writing about personal development, self-leadership and environmental issues for over three decades.

He is an honours graduate from the University of Greenwich and worked in the music industry for 13 years as joint Managing Director of a large export company, winning the Queen’s Award for Export on two occasions.

The growing demand for his talks, workshops and writings, encouraged him to become a full time international speaker and author from 1991. Since then he has had many articles published and several acclaimed non-fiction books such as: Courting the Future: Preparing for a Different World, which is a collection of essays that explore the future in a visionary and practical way.

In recent years Mark has been developing a trilogy for young adult readers, which focusses on some of the key contemporary issues that they face – from relationships, body image and bullying, to the climate emergency.

The first book, ‘Home: My life in the Universe’, containing 21 colour illustrations by Grant MacDonald, was launched at Waterstones on Earth Day 2022. ‘Home’ is an original coming-of-age story and a profound journey of self-discovery and developing friendships.

It has been equally popular with adults and young adults alike, and has received acclaim and outstanding reviews including from teachers, librarians and in the press. ‘Home’ was a recommended summer read by The Scotsman who wrote: “Home is a thought provoking and delightful read.”  

Mark lives with his wife in a village on the green belt of London, where he has been campaigning for protection of the countryside, biodiversity and natural habitats.
